Nitrogen seeding in fusion reactors is an option to reduce the power loads on the tungsten divertor. A problematic by-product is of nitrogen seeding is ammonia, which eats up tritium that should be used as fuel instead. As a part of understanding how to minimise this ammonia production, this Master proposal aims at characterizing N2-H2 radiofrequency discharges produced at different conditions (e.g., input power, pressure, concentration) in the cylindrical metal-free chamber at the University of Basel, Switzerland.

The DINA code is an unique IO's in-house tool for free-boundary control scenario development. It is available on the ITER Integrated modelling environment (IMAS) for development of various physics workflows by combining multiple physics codes and models. As an important step for code validation, the development of workflows by combining DINA and external heating and current drive models (available on IMAS) needs to be demonstrated.

In the Fusor, an Inertial Electrostatic Confinement Device, ions are accelerated towards the centre of an inner sphere where the ion energy is high enough to cause a fraction to fuse. The educational aim of the experiment is to demonstrate the physics of fusion reactions, as well as to gain experience in diagnostic methods and ionising radiation issues.
